About The Owner

Hi, we are Lynn and Bob, and we are both retired and enjoying life together. Our two sons were married and gone over 15 years ago. They have granted us five wonderful grandchildren.

Lynn was and still is an exceptional homemaker and owned a successful vending company for a number of years after our nest was empty. Bob retired from Cummins Inc. after almost 32 years where he held a number of manufacturing engineering and information technology leadership positions at Cummins' largest engine manufacturing facility and at Cummins World Headquarters in Columbus, Indiana.

We continue to have a home in Columbus Indiana and Panama City Beach. When possible we enjoy time with our family and traveling together. We are both still very 'hands on' in caring for and running our homes inside and out. As a result we stay very active, and try to maintain a healthy life style. Neither of us have ever smoked and neither of our current homes have ever had pets in them.

We have enjoyed working as a team doing many home improvement projects over the years and still do today. We owned rental property in Columbus for over 30 years and a number of second homes in Panama City Beach over the past 20 years.

We love our home towns of Columbus, Indiana and Panama City Beach, Florida. We have made wonderful family memories in both places, and we never get tired of watching both communities grow and develop. They are both wonderful places.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

We established a family vacation tradition years ago, and we soon realized that it was difficult to insure the quality of our accommodations. Rental agencies rarely reserve a specific unit, and on a few occasions we were a little surprised at what we found when we opened the door.

We then discovered that renting directly from an owner was a great solution. We were able to see pictures of the specific condo, and we consistently rented much better quality accommodations for less money.

We eventually decided to apply our experience in real estate investing to a vacation condo and take the quality a level higher.

We take pride in providing a beachfront vacation condo that is truly exceptional. Vacation memories with family and friends are among the real treasures of life and the right setting can make those memories more special.

We had previously owned a 2 bedroom condo at Long Beach Resort and sold it near the peak of the condo boom and latterly cried all the way to the bank with seller’s remorse. We replaced it with another condo with taller ceilings but it was a typical condo floor plan. We always missed the incredible 2 Bedroom Long Beach Resort floor plan with wall to wall oceanfront views in every room.

When a 2 bedroom Long Beach Resort penthouses came on the market, we saw a winning trifecta of opportunities: 1) Best 2 bedroom floor plan on the beach, 2) 10’ plus ceilings and 3) Being conveniently located in the heart of Panama City Beach in Long Beach Resort. As the saying goes, “It just doesn't get any better than that!”

We challenged some of the area’s top interior decorators to help us create a relaxing yet elegant decor that incorporates the latest in comfort and luxury. Check out all our photos. We hope you will agree.

We selectively rent it to cover the growing cost of ownership. If you are looking for an extraordinary vacation experience right on the beach at an affordable price, give us a call. We would be pleased to reserve it for you.

What makes this condo unique

The thing we enjoy the most about our condo is sharing it with our family, especially our grandchildren. However, we also treasure 'our beach time'. Weather it is on the balcony or under an umbrella (taking advantage of our seasonally prepaid and reserved beach service) on the beach with something cool to drink, we never stop enjoying our place right on the beach.

We also never get tired of exploring all the places of interest in Panama City Beach: restaurants, shopping, entertainment and more. Panama City Beach keeps us busy and enjoying life together and with our family.

Pretty close to perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in a lot of different places in the FL Panhandle over the past 10 years, and this condo just might have been our favorite! It checks all our boxes:

VIEW- beautiful views from the 14th floor spacious balcony and every room in the unit. Great sunset view from balcony.

COMFORT- Super comfortable beds and nice living room furniture. The inside has been newly renovated w/ top of the line finishes. Open floor plan, roomy bathrooms and nice master shower. We actually slept better than we ever have while away from home! We did, however, have to buy new pillows. We found the pillows there too dense for our liking (should've just brought our pillows from home & will next time).

WALK TO BEACH- fast and easy walk down to the beach and pools. Just 1 set of doors to walk thru and there's a button you press that will open them for you, and 1 keypad gate to get onto beach. Clean bathrooms right by the pool area that are very easy to access from the beach.

PROXIMITY TO SHOPS/RESTAURANTS- Walmart is right across the street along with lots of other shops/restaurants within walking distance. There is plenty to do in the area within a short drive. We loved Pier Park for shopping and Pineapple Willies (just a short walk down the beach) for great food/atmosphere in a casual setting.

FREE BEACH SVC- you can't beat having 2 chairs/1 umbrella waiting for you down at the beach every day!

We had a great week but it wasn't love at first sight. We arrived at the tail end of "bike week" so it was very loud and crowded on the road. Luckily, things quieted down after a few days (and I will be googling when "bike week" is from now on). Also there is currently road construction going on right in front of the resort but that should be done soon. The other thing to mention is while this condo is top of the line, it doesn't come with a lot of the basics. You will need to bring or buy: salt & pepper, paper towels, dish soap, kitchen sponge, hand soap, trash bags, toilet paper, laundry soap etc. I wish I knew this beforehand so I could've just brought it from home instead of having to buy it all at Walmart.

This was our first time staying in Panama City and we found it to be more of a younger crowd than the Destin Area. But the beach area out in front of this resort was MUCH quieter than other places down the beach. Overall, it was a fabulous week and we would definitely love to stay here again.

Easter Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is beautiful. We have been staying at condos on the beach for several years and this one, by far, is second to none. The overall building is a little older, but for being on the top floor, the elevators were super fast and convenient. The parking lot is accessible and was not crowded when we were there. The beach chairs and service were great, the beach and water was amazing. My boys had a ton of fun and created a lot of memories. We loved the heated pool and hot tub after a day on the sand. (Note that that lagoon pool is not heated and the concession stand did not open at all while we were there) Pineapple Willys was a short stroll on the beach and a fun, casual night out. Overall, one of the best vacations we have had!

The only thing I would mention, which has nothing to do with the condo itself, is that you have to remember you are still at Panama City and their is a LOT of construction on the road and traffic is signifcant on the weekends. In addition, our beach chairs were about three sets of chairs down from what ended up being a very large (40-50 people) group of 20 year olds that gathered each day. Although that party looked like a ton of fun (my husband wished he was 25 again :) we did ask to be moved to another set of chairs after a few days. So know that you don't have to stay where you are first assigned. We thought we would be safe and not run into some of the younger crowd because our Easter Break was so late in the season, but it was not the case-our mistake.

Absolutely the best accomodations on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the nicest condos that we have stayed at in Florida by far. The pictures do not do this place justice. The condo was spotless when we arrived and the views are breath taking. Our family felt like we were at home with an abundance of space and amenities. I would highly recommend Robert and Lynn's condo to anyone that is planning to visit Panama City Beach. The beach was beautiful and occupied mostly by families and not a bunch of spring breakers. Thank you Robert and Lynn for allowing our family to stay at your condo. My wife and I and our three daughters truly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to coming back again soon.

incredible vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and has all the comforts of a very nice home. The double sink bathrooms , walk in closets, and the kitchen is incredible. But, the best is access to the deck from both bedrooms and the incredible floor to ceiling windows which give exceptional views. Highly recommend this unit and the owners are great to deal with !
